James Prosek Limited Edition Snook
One hundred of the individually hand painted, anodized and laser engraved snook design reels will be produced. Reels will be accompanied by a signed and numbered 11x14-inch gicleè print of a snook by Prosek. The print number will correspond to the reel number.
Reel number one and gicleè print number one will be donated to the Snook Foundation, Sarasota, Fla., by Abel for the organization’s outright sale, auction or raffle, according to Swanson.
The American-made Abel Super 7/8N is machined from cold finished 6061-T651 aerospace grade aluminum. Reels are then precision machined (not die cast) on C.N.C. lathes and mills. The reel holds a 7-weight line with 225 yards of 20-pound backing or an 8-weight line and 200 yards of backing. It weighs 6.8 ounces.
The late William R. Mote, an inventor and industrialist, established the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota Florida in 1967. Since then, the laboratory has become known for its research and contributions to marine conservation. Mr. Mote's love and concern for the snook led him to establish the first successful culture program in 1996, and subsequently to authorize the establishment of the Snook Foundation in 1998.
“His vision for the foundation was for it to serve as a platform for anglers and conservationists to preserve, protect and enhance snook and game fish populations,” said Rick Roberts, executive director.
The James Prosek snook gicleè print is an individually produced high resolution reproduction.
